    I have never heard of having 2 addressbooks. I have created "groups" before, but it still leaves all the contacts in the groups and in the main contact list as well.

    i'd be curious if this is possible and i just don't know about it.

    I would try to create them in Categories. Have them setup in Outlook (that is if you have them in there) as Personal and Work. Then when you just want to sort them out, you can go to the Filter in the Address Book and you'll view your work contacts or your personal contacts without having them mixed together. The con of this is that each time you want to change from a work contact to a personal contact and vice-versa, you'll have to go back to the filter.

    I have 2 phonebooks on my 8830, granted its not a Pearl, but any BB I have ever had that also had a sim can do this. Have one list on your BB, and one on your sim. Does this help?

    By defalt there are categories for business and personal contacts, just mark each one and you can filter to each or both lists from the address book view.
